The digestive health benefits of probiotics have been studied for decades. More recently, studies have shown that probiotics can also help boost the immune system. As a result, probiotics are the largest growing new ingredient in supplements and foods. In fact, it’s anticipated that by 2021, probiotics will be the largest and most widely used ingredient to help consumers live healthier lives.

What Are Probiotics and Why Are They Good for You?

According to the Mayo Clinic, probiotics contain live organisms, usually specific strains of bacteria that directly add to the population of healthy microbes in your gut. By having healthier bacteria in your gut, you can have a healthier digestive system.

The lining of your gut, like every surface of your body, is covered in microscopic creatures, mostly bacteria. These organisms create a micro-ecosystem called the microbiome. What you feed your microbiome may have the biggest impact on its health. And the healthier your microbiome is, the healthier you are.

Along with helping you have a healthier digestive system, probiotics can also provide a boost to your immune system. According to a 2014 study by the National Institute of Health on Probiotics and immune health, the beneficial effects of probiotics have been demonstrated in many diseases, including allergies, eczema, and viral infections. How do probiotics do this? They help regulate the body’s own immune response.

Other studies have suggested that probiotics can help reduce cholesterol levels, improve the absorption of vitamins and minerals, and help with gastric reflux.
